Maxmillion Dunbar – Loving the Drift video

Upstart U Street dance hall Tropicalia is giving the established champ U Street Music Hall a run for its money with booking exciting talent. Tonight they partner with local electronic label Future Times to host Sal P, legendary member of NYC post-punk act Liquid Liquid. Unnamed Future Times DJs warm up the room, and it’s a good bed one of them will be Maxmillion Dunbar aka Andrew Field-Pickering, one half of the duo Beautiful Swimmers, head of Future Times and a well-established electronic musician with two full length albums and a handful of strong singles. Max D drops a brand new album House of Woo on the RVNG Intl. label on February 19th, and just today released the first music video from it, for Loving the Drift. This is a great first taste of what’s sure to be a fine night of out-there beats at Tropicalia.

Beautiful Swimmers – O Yea video

Beautiful Swimmers, the duo of Ari Goldman and Andrew Field-Pickering, make dance floor music that veers towards the abstract but still maintains the beat and vibe. This Friday night they’ll be throwing down tunes in advance of Oslo’s Lindstrøm for Red Fridays and Blisspop at DC’s mecca of great dance music, U Street Music Hall. Today we’ve got the video for O Yea, which features beautiful exercising ladies who don’t mind at all being trapped in an 80s video special effects machine.

Just a few days ago they released an hour long DJ mix called Loose Control on SoundCloud, with some secret unreleased gems soon to appear on their label Future Times. Don’t miss this show!

Beautiful Swimmers – Big Coast video

Tonight the monthly free dance party The Whale, from the fine folks at the Future Times label, returns to the U Street Music Hall. The musical selectors for the evening include Andrew Morgan from Peoples Potential Unlimited Records and Ari Goldman and Andrew Field-Pickering, better known as Beautiful Swimmers. The video they made for their 2010 single Big Coast looks like it was made on vintage 80s video equipment, and does not skimp on the beautiful swimmers.

You should also give a listen to a clip from Motorbike, it’s pretty awesome.
